    nothing to do with head scarfs………just wanted to share the advantages of being O 60. Got a letter from my health care saying the government is giving my a 37c discount, yes folks you read right 37cent PLUS today i got FREE bowel cancer test kit, OMG does it get any better????? love getting older!!!!! :'(

  4. If they had used a 60+ model I would be more inclined to try them, but what looks great on a 28 year old may not look as good on a 60 year old.
